You learn a lot about yourself and your ex-significant other when you break-up. Or as celebrities now call it “conscious uncoupling.” You learn about character, integrity, and the value of the emotional investment in your relationship of both people.
Ideally, when the choice is made to end a relationship, be it friendship or love affair, there should be no good person or bad person. It takes two people to be present in a relationship.
Each has a responsibility to maintain the integrity of the partnership. As my Granny used to say “There are two-sides to every story and somewhere in the middle is the truth.” The temptation to be the victim or discount your ex is powerful. Sadly, it does not achieve anything.
Breaking up is a painful experience for all involved. The untangling of emotions and lives is complex. The temptation to indulge in carbohydrates and liquor in abundance is strong. As hard as it is; it is the most important time to keep yourself mentally and physically healthy.
This website has some great tips for keeping healthy.
Today I am thankful
- My best friend came over for a visit!
- The view out my window
- It’s finale night on The Voice
Love shouldn’t hurt. If it does, make sure it’s love you are feeling.
affectionately yours, Laura
